Using MathType with Maple

Maple is a popular computer algebra system that has the capability of using MathML both for input and output. MathType makes it easy to create the MathML for Maple, or to use equations in Maple you've already used in previous work.

  1. From MathType's Preferences menu choose: Cut and Copy Preferences. On the Macintosh, this will be in the Preferences flyout of the MathType menu.
  2. Choose: Equation for application or website > Maple. Click OK.
  1. Assuming you've followed the steps in the previous section, select the equation or equation fragment in MathType you want to insert into Maple, and copy it.
  2. Paste the equation into a Maple worksheet.
  3. After pasting the equation, Maple will ask you if you want to convert the equation into 2D math; answer Yes. You can now use the equation just like any other Maple equation.
  1. Right-click (Mac: ctrl+click) the equation and choose Copy as MathML from the contextual menu. (See picture below.) Alternatively, you can use the Copy as MathML from the Copy Special submenu of the Edit menu.
  2. Paste into MathType. The equation may now be edited and used just like any other MathType equation.
